CWRU Anthropology and Engineering Students Collaborate on Global Health Issues in Uganda

Posted on March 24, 2016

As featured in The Daily, 10 Case Western Reserve University anthropology and engineering students traveled to Uganda to work alongside 11 biomedical engineering students from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. The students are participating in a course titled “Interdisciplinary Solutions to Global Health Problems,” a collaboration between biomedical engineering and medicine professor, Andrew Rollins, and anthropology professor, Janet McGrath. The course builds upon the Uganda-Case Western Reserve University Research Collaboration that began in 1988. The teams of students are working on finding solutions to gaps in medical waste management as well as vaccine cold-chain preservation and designing a better pediatric pulse oximeter for low-resource environments.
